Solar Streets is a way of getting solar panels for your house or business at discounted prices.  You can directly help in the fight against climate change, as well as helping your local community, as a donation is given to the Community Fund on every install – £50 for a domestic installation and £100 for a commercial one. 

Your solar panels will be installed by IDDEA Ltd.  Established in 2007, IDDEA have depots in Westbury in Wiltshire, and High Wycombe in Bucks, and have installed over 1,000 solar projects across the South and are committed to supporting communities to take action against climate change.  They have installed Solar Streets projects in neighbouring areas including High Wycombe, Marlow, Henley, Chinnor, and Thame, as well as further afield in Frome, Wells, Swanage, and others.

If you have any questions to do with Solar Streets or anything you’ve seen on this page then email us at Info@SolarStreets.co.uk and we’ll get back to you.

Let’s make Wendover and Villages Solar Streets an effective weapon in the fight to halt Climate Change and Save Our Planet.

Who is Involved?

A Message from your Green Advocates

“Climate Action Wendover are delighted to support this Solar Streets Initiative. We are a local group that was formed in February 2020 to focus on reducing our communities’ carbon footprint, improve our reuse and recycling and increase local biodiversity. We want to demonstrate that a single community can make a difference to the global climate crisis. Installing Solar PV panels on your house or business premises is one very significant step to reducing your carbon footprint and over time saving you money. IDDEA are a well-established company, have run similar projects in many other local towns such as Thame, Chinnor, and High Wycombe, and they will work directly with homeowners to provide bespoke solutions whilst providing excellent value through economies of scale. We encourage you to attend the Zoom meeting to learn more and if you would like to know more about Climate Action Wendover then please visit our website at www.climateactionwendover.org or follow us on Facebook at  www.facebook.com/climateactionwendover

“Buckinghamshire Community Energy is delighted to work with Climate Action Wendover and IDDEA to bring Solar Streets to Wendover and Villages. Our main objective is to help to reduce carbon emissions in Buckinghamshire, and the Wendover and Villages area can have a big impact on getting this to Net Zero by 2030. We are hoping lots of residents will take advantage of the Solar Streets offer to invest in affordable, renewable energy to ensure more of the electricity they use daily is zero carbon, and therefore better for the planet.”

Please note:  if you are hard of hearing or find it difficult to watch the videos then we have written transcripts available for all of them – just ask us for them on Info@SolarStreets.co.uk 

                            

 

How Do I Get the Deal?

  • Contact IDDEA directly through Info@IDDEA.co.uk and tell them you are part of Wendover and Villages Solar Streets.  Provide your name, phone number and address with postcode.

  • They will conduct a desktop survey of your property making sure it is suitable for solar panels – this is done across the internet using Google Earth. 

  • They would normally then come and see you for a physical survey, but these are not normal times, and so the next step is to gather more information about your property by talking to you and emailing. 

  • They will produce a free quotation.  If you want any added extras they will explain them all to you clearly and with transparant prices – there will be no hard sell ever. 

  • When you accept the quotation in principal, IDDEA will come out and do a technical survey of your property to make sure that the quotation is correct.  If everything is OK they will resubmit the quotation to you and if you want to go ahead then a 25% deposit is taken. Please be assured that IDDEA are members of HIES, which offers consumers protection against unforseen issues.  If anything should happen to IDDEA and they could not continue your installation, then HIES will make sure you get your money back.  https://www.hiesscheme.org.uk/ 

  • A date will be set for the installation and just before installation takes place then an extra 35% is payable.

  • When the installation is complete and successfully signed off you pay the extra 40%.

  • Even during lockdown solar panels can be installed as they are classed as “permitted construction”.

Thinking of Changing Supplier?

We looked for a renewable energy supplier who wanted to support Solar Streets by contributing to the Community Fund whenever anyone switched to them.  Octopus were the only company who were interested in helping the community scheme.  When you switch you will receive £50 as a bill credit and the Community Fund will receive £50.

Please note – you do not have to change supplier to get the Solar Streets deal  

However, if you wish to find out about the energy deal with Octopus Energy then click the OctopusEnergy Picture below and get a quote.  You can then compare the quote to any other green energy companies before you decide – they all have different tariffs and different benefits. You do not have to wait for your panels to be installed before you switch; in fact you do not even have to have panels installed – you can use this link to switch to Octopus energy at any time and they will still give you a £50 bill credit and £50 contribution to the community fund.

Please note:  neither IDDEA nor The Green Group receives any money or commission from Octopus Energy for this deal – you get £50 and the Community Fund gets £50 – that’s it!
